Very White Christmas In Calgary!

It is just 12 hours before Christmas day. Most Canadians love "White Christmas" but not "very white" like now. Snow accumulation is 10 to 15 centimeters already and still snowing. Whew, I miss sunny/warm Christmas in the Philippines. O, no! According to the news, a typhoon is making a landfall in the Philippines including Manila on Christmas day! Bad news. Look at the picture above . . dark and gloomy! I hate it. But I am sure our friend - Paigea - is happy coz she loves to ski.

@sharon6345 Lots of crashes today . . . roads are covered with thick snow and very slippery. Thank heavens, my truck's tires are winter tires. My car got all-season tires, so am not driving it this winter. D'you still want to switch?

So, just like the Philippines, it does not snow in India? I wish I could send all the snow in front of house to your place so that you could build a snow man, @silvermist

@antonbunot it was in @SIMPLYD's hometown i think that had the typhoon-stricken Christmas day, kabsat. ours up to this day, is still a gloomy, drizzle-ly post-Christmas day and new year's day as well.

@antonbunot There are areas in Australia where it snows and we actually have more snow in Australia than Switzerland. Melbourne might very occasionally get one or two flakes perhaps but that would be very unusual.

I am happy and we had some fresh snow here too!!! Remember, the days are already getting longer! Merry Christmas! How many grandchildren will you see over Christmas? I will not see family until Monday, Boxing Day. But that is okay. Hubby and I are enjoying a quiet Christmas day together.

Just 4 grandchildren are in Calgary this Christmas, my friend. The other 4 who are in Regina are not coming to Calgary this holiday. We are going to church this morning . . am dressed up already, but my missus is just half done. Another hour of waiting, I am sure! . . Here is our grandkid #8 . . he is not happy posing for picture as I was taking so long to make a shot!

@antonbunot There's always something. In Iowa, it was bitter cold Winters and tornadoes in the warmer months (very rare). Here in California, it's earthquakes.

I am a Canuk too and used to love snow, but now that I am over the hill, the snow is not in my favorite thing. Actually, it is a good thing that you are in Canada right now with the snow, better than being in the middle of a typhoon. Must be so scary.
